ROLETTE, N.D. – Sometimes when Apryl Lunde is creating skin care products, they don't turn out quite how she expected. But she can usually tweak them enough to make them work. Lunde, who lives with her husband, Curt Lunde, and their two children on a farm near here, makes skin care products with natural ingredients, most of which she gets from her farm. She calls her business Feral Farm, because the farm where they now live had been vacant for years. Lunde is known for her goats' milk soap, said Katie Crofutt of Rolette, one of Lunde's customers.

An air compressor tank and bicycle rims have been transformed into a water tower-shaped bird feeder. A bicycle rim and galvanized roofing metal have become a windmill.
